A Japanese Hair Salon Has Created A CoWorking Space For Stylists
Coworking spaces are currently on the rise, as the current generation values the freedom to live life on their terms. In tradition workspaces, WeWork has become a behemoth that has allowed creatives and business people alike to use a shared working space for a monthly fee. This is ideal because it eliminates much of the overhead it would cost to run a company in a place like New York, where rent is known to be sky-high.
It seems as though this concept is now making its way into the beauty/grooming industry, as the Japanese Go Today Shaire Salon in Tokyo was inspired by coworking and designed for freelance beauticians. Those who are just starting off in the industry can rent booths and stations without having to adhere to the traditional route. It is said to be far cheaper than booth rent in the typical shop setting, and stylists can schedule appointments on their own schedule.
Designed by the Japanese design firm Canoma, the Shaire Salon’s space consists of 12 semi-private stations, each of which have names like “Empowerment” and “Freedom”–ostensibly to remind the stylists working there of what the coworking salon is providing them.”
